Creamy Leek and Potato Pesto Soup

Soup is always a hit or miss with my kids. If there are vegetables or green stuff in their soup chances are it’s a no for them. No matter how many cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches I make as a side… they still aren’t having it. Then it hit me one night when they scarfed down their mashed potatoes that I’ve never tried making them potato soup. Liquid mashed potatoes! To be honest, I don’t love potato soup, I would much […]

Carrot Turmeric Yogurt Dip

The other day I was at the grocery store looking for dips, and they all seemed so unhealthy. Many dips have MSG and other ingredients that are not good for you. When I got home, I decided to make my own with my Magic Bullet! This carrot, turmeric yogurt dip is packed with flavor and great for dipping vegetables. Carrot Turmeric Yogurt Dip Ingredients 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp […]

Beet and Kale Galette

It is no secret how much I love galettes. They are super easy to make, especially when you cheat a little bit with a store-bought crust. They don’t need to look pretty, and they taste great with just about any ingredient. For this galette recipe, I used herbed goat cheese and sour cream as the base, topped with cooked, sliced beets, honey and baby kale. For a crispier crust, you can brush an egg wash all around the edges just […]

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Salsa doesn’t last long in our household. We usually have a handful of jars of homemade salsa in our fridge and 15 opened bags of tortilla chips in the pantry. We are slightly obsessed. Tomatillos have become my new favorite salsa ingredients, especially roasted! The flavor is similar to tomatoes, but more tart. Paired with cilantro and roasted jalapeños, you might find this recipe to be your new go to! Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe Ingredients: 1 pound husked tomatillos 1 […]

Chocolate, Raspberry, Vanilla Chia Pudding

Sometimes I can’t make up my mind when it comes to choosing a flavor for chia seed pudding. My solution: make three different flavors and layer them in one cup! This layered chia seed pudding dessert is made with chocolate and vanilla almond milk and raspberry jam. For best results, let the pudding stand in the fridge overnight. The chia seeds magically thicken the almond milk creating a delicious pudding-like texture. Chocolate, Raspberry, Vanilla Chia Pudding Ingredients 1/2 banana 1 […]

Curry and Chive Dip

Back in the day, we used to use powder packet dip mixes for parties. Now, we love to make our own dips from scratch. This sour cream-based dip is flavored with curry powder, paprika, garlic, vegetable bouillon and fresh chives. You can serve this curry dip with a tray of vegetables or chips. What about vegetable chips? 🙂 Curry and Chive Dip Recipe Ingredients 1 cup sour cream 1 tbsp curry powder 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp vegetable bouillon 1 […]

Butternut Squash Lasagna

This butternut squash lasagna is a great vegetarian version of this popular layered pasta dish. The layers consist of a creamy, fresh butternut squash purée, a thick white sauce, cheese and lasagna noodles. I always use oven-ready lasagna noodles, which are so much easier since all you have to do is layer them in your baking dish right out of the box. You don’t have to boil them first! Be sure to cover the lasagna with foil for most of […]

Roasted Asparagus Frittata

It is so simple, quick, and tasty! Feel free to add whatever roasted veggies you like, and flavor of cheese. Make it your own! Roasted Asparagus Frittata Ingredients 1 bunch asparagus, roughly chopped 2 tb. butter 4 […]

Tomato Fennel Soup

Although I love classic homemade tomato soup, sometimes it is fun to switch things up and add new ingredients. For this tomato fennel soup recipe, I added some chopped fennel cooked in garlic, onion and olive oil. The fennel gives the tomato soup a subtle refreshing flavor. Using many different vegetables in soups makes them healthier, too! Garnish with fennel leaves and serve with a crusty baguette. Tomato Fennel Soup Recipe Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil 1/2 onion, chopped 1 […]
